6 | April 12, 2018 | The glenview lantern news glenviewlantern.com Glenview Village Board Zack and Dottie The Burke family, of Glenview This is Zack Burke. He’s 15 1/2 — a little guy, but mighty. Though this fullbred beagle is quite the senior now, filling his days with cozy slumber and many treats, he does have his spunky time when he and a squeaky toy get their workouts. But I can’t introduce you to Zack without his sister. Dottie, also a fullbred beagle, and Zack went together like peanut butter and jelly. She loved her walks, always in the lead of her brother, who was slower to follow. Dottie died last year at the age of 14. The Burke family will always think of Dottie as a pair to Zack. HELP!

The Glenview Board directed village staff to create an ordinance prohibiting their use during its Tuesday, April 3 meeting. Brent Troxell, the assistant to the village manager, said the sealants are already prohibited from being used in public projects but that permit applications for parking lots and driveways are not currently required. According to Troxell, the American Medical Association is calling for prohibition of these sealants because they pose health and environmental risks. Six neighboring communities already prohibit their use: Northbrook, Wilmette, Winnetka, Deerfield, Highland Park and Evanston. Sheri Latash, co-president of the Glenview/ Glencoe League of Women Voters, told the board that licensing contractors to ensure they don’t use coal tar wouldn’t create a hardship for residents or business owners. However, Trustee Scott Britton said that registering contractors would be too cumbersome. Instead, he suggested ensuring compliance through the threat of heavy fines. GIS resource pooling allows for discounted purchases Amy Ahner, director of Administrative Services, gave the trustees an update and overview of the Geographic Information System that was introduced in the village 12 years ago. “GIS combines date from many sources,” Ahner said. She cited standard map updates, data query and visualization, spatial analysis, geographic index to records by address, field operations, quick public information access, and support for data requests from outside organizations. In 2006, Glenview joined the GIS Consortium, which is made up of 34 member communities. The consortium members share staffing, resources, products and innovations. They also make joint purchases. According to Ahner, Glenview has received volume discounts between 14-40 percent over the last three years thanks to the joint purchases. Merta, Glenview to coordinate train station rehabilitation Scott Brady, director of Community Development, discussed Metra’s project to rehabilitate the platforms of the train station at The Glen of North Glenview. “Metra controls the platform, the area between the station and the tracks,” Brady said. “The Village owns and maintains the existing pavers and concrete sidewalk around the platform, which also are failing.” He recommend that the village coordinate its rehabilitation work with that of Metra and suggested that it use matching materials for the resurfacing. New Goodwill store receives rezoning approval The board gave final approval for an ordinance granting an official map amendment and rezoning for the Goodwill Store at 2740 Old Willow Road. The area is currently occupied by a trucking facility and two light industrial buildings and required rezoning from light industrial to a general business district to accommodate the 18,005 square-foot Goodwill building. Preliminary approval was given for a variation of right of way, zoning variation, rezoning and conditional-use ordinance to allow building additions and site plan alterations for Glenview Community Church at 1000 Elm Street. The zoning variations increase the maximum building size and eave length to match existing non-conforming structures. A portion of Prairie Avenue will be consolidated within the property; there will be 46 off-site parking spaces off Elm Street and Glenview Road; and ground-mounted facilities will be permitted.
